I have a Sun StorageTek SL500 tape library that I need to put in a service call, but don't have the serial number handy. Does anyone know if it is possible to get the serial number for the library from netbackup or the Linux host which the library is attached too?

If the udev package is installed, then

# /lib/udev/scsi_id  --page=0x80   --whitelisted      /dev/sg4
SSPECTRA PYTHON         0123456456

where 0123456456 is the Serial Number
